Water Your Plants Properly

This tip may seem like a piece of cake, but not all homeowners are doing it. Some people who are not doing it correctly. That’s why it’s about time people start to prioritise on not just acknowledging the importance of watering their plants, but also to make sure they do it properly. Since the humidity is high during the summer, fungi tend to grow on your plant due to excess moisture. However, you can avoid this by not water your plants just before dark. That way, the plant leaves have time to dry. A common mistake that people tend to do is that they wet the leaves. They think that by watering the leaves, they’re preventing it from turning yellow. That’s something that you should stop doing. Not only is it causing fungi to grow on the leaves, but it also doesn’t do anything to hydrate your plants. Instead, you should water on the soil since it’s where the roots are located.

 

Keep Pests Away

Another notable garden maintenance/upkeep is to keep pests away from your plants. Pull out weeds and get rid of empty cans and bottles. These areas can potentially be breeding grounds for pests. Several insects such as the praying mantis and ladybugs are enemies of these pests. That means having them in your garden is an excellent, no-cost way to ward off pests. Make sure you have these types of insects in your garden. Don’t spray pesticides as you’re not only killing off the pests but you’re also eliminating the insects that can remove these pests naturally.

 

Organise Your Gardening Tools

To make sure you do fast and efficient gardening, you’ll need to organise your tools properly. That means you’ll have to dedicate a small corner in the rear part of your garden for your tools, or you can create a garden shed. You can also choose to put them in a box or a small cabinet. Either way, they’ll be easy to find and access.
